It seems like the BIOS recognizing your drive...

Are there any strange noises coming from the hard drive?

Did you check BIOS settings?

Is the boot order right?

when i connect hard drive i cannot go into the bios setup. If i remove the hard drive, i can go into it.

The boot device priority

1st boot device MBAV7.0.3 SLOT 02
2ND boot device MBA V7.0.3 SLOT 02

I guess there is a problem with the hard disk (or maybe the mainboard/SATA controller).

Do you have another hard disk that you can test on this server?

My boot order was wrong, i changed it to CHRB and the server supports 640 GB in each slot, but i was trying to connect  1 TB. So, i used all 500 GB drives in the server. Thanks for posting
